Welcome Visitor

As they say

" knock and ye shall find"

If you are a mason visiting Newcastle upon Tyne and wish to join us at a meeting

Well, we meet on the 3rd Monday of each month except July and August. Our meetings usually start at 7pm. Introduce yourself and you will be certain to be made welcome. We meet in Fern Avenue Masonic Hall (off Osborne Rd) which is close to both Jesmond and West Jesmond Metro stations. Follow the signs to the "Antiques' Village" and we are above the shops.

Our night of Installation is November and it is unique what with the bugler and all. However at our installation you would need to book ahead to be certain of a place at the festive board. Contact us (by clicking on the envelope below) if you wish to know more.

On the other hand, are you a non-mason and wish to know more, perhaps with a view to becoming a member?

Can I state at the onset that there is no requirement to be a member of the Royal British Legion in order to join Legion Lodge. We have no direct link with the RBL.

So what do you want to know? Well I could start off by telling you that Freemasonry is Britain's largest secular charitable organisation. But you probably knew that already. I could tell you that it teaches moral lessons and self knowledge but again you might just have an inkling of that.

If you wish to know more then I can do no better than to direct you to the site of the


If they can't explain what Freemasonry is all about then we may as well all go home now.

What I would like to say in addition to what you will learn from the above site, is that Freemasonry does provide the opportunity to try out many skills that perhaps are not taught or that you, as an individual, have not had the chance to experience elsewhere e.g. you may well have to

  • speak in public
  • think on your feet
  • chair meetings
It also provide an outlet for personal interests such as:-
  • caring
  • fundraising
  • administration
  • taking part in ceremonial
  • developing your dramatic talents

Above all Freemasonry is fun. Most lodges have a social programme far wider than just the lodge meetings themselves. Through masonry I have met people from many countries and I have become firm friends with quite a few.

Please do visit the UGLE site above. Please do visit other sites from my links page; many do have "What is Freemasonry" sections. If you have any questions then click on the envelope and I will try my best to give you an answer.

Should you wish to join our Lodge, then contact us (by clicking on the envelope below) and we will take it from there.
